The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom
2 September 2013
Summary: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom has been anxiously anticipated by many members of the Destructoid staff. I am not one of those people. Despite repeatedly hearing the name followed by words of praise or excitement, I barely gave it a second thought amidst the seemingly unending flood of games which have been releasing as of late. Now I see what all the fuss was about.
Excerpt: It is a rare thing for me sit down, start a review and have nothing to say. I am almost always like the Matthew West Song: "Something to Say." Friends, family, and co-workers have known for years that I have something to say. Senators, Congressmen, and even the President know I have something to say. The reason I am working on compiling my thoughts is the creativity, and ingenuity behind The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom.
The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (XBLA/Steam) Review
21 June 2011
Conclusion: When it all comes down to it, P. B. Winterbottom is the definitive indie game. It is refined, polished, clever, unique, and well-crafted. It has a slick, consistent presentation, and most importantly, it is FUN. Like all good puzzle games it is difficult enough to challenge you, difficult enough to make you feel like a genius for figuring it out, but never too frustrating for too long.

Review: The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom (Microsoft Xbox 360)
26 May 2010
Summary: Building off its stellar presentation, The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom offers up a puzzling adventure that is sure to challenge gamers all the while captivating them in the endearing world of Bakersfield. The audio and visuals are superb and are used to maximum effect in producing a unique silent film environment, and the gameplay keeps players performing new tasks while offering tight controls.
Summary: Parents need to know that The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom offers a unique gaming experience in both visual style and style of play, but that this mind-bending puzzle game is also extremely difficult. Kids who don't have the patience for trial and error, or who can't tolerate a game in which they may need to replay the same level several times before succeeding, are likely to get frustrated.
Conclusion: The puzzles themselves can be quite challenging but always fill you with a sense of accomplishment when you finally find a solution. Speaking of solutions the same puzzle can be solved many ways. This really becomes apparent in the challenge sections which are not part of the main game, but add a lot extra action. Definitely worth the ten bucks.
Summary: With all of the big name titles out and around the corner, it may be tough to squeeze this title in, but take it from me, for the 800 points, it’s definitely worth a few fun-filled hours of entertainment. If you liked the mechanics, design, style and graphics of Braid , then you’ll like everything about The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom . If you haven’t tried EITHER of these games, then you need to stop playing Modern Warfare and download these bastards!
